Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"We had my father cremated. We chose Kilgore because it was convenient to where he lived. It is not near where we live, so we probably won't choose to use your services in the future. We did not have a service, so those questions don't apply to us. We were pleased with Drew. He was always available. The length of time to receive Dad's ashes and the death certificates were as expected. Thank-you!"
